Moonlight

Getting into the October spirit with this little sketch. Based on a lighting condition I saw on the way home from a late night at work...took a few moments and made some live mental notes, then tried to pull it out of my head when I got home.

Hey marco. Love the feel of this one. I always wanted to capture that moonlight feeling.

Thanks so much for the comments as well. They really helped. I completely agree with you too. I always find that I tend to "simplify" too much all the time, but then I guess there's that line between too simple and too complicated. I'll keep trying and thanks again. Feel free to comment all the time. "You can't learn if you don't know any better."

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and commenting--I really appreciate it.

The muted palette really works well in this image; it's calm, but eerie at the same time!
